I need some advice/guidance. I didn’t have much luck on the Facebook group, so trying my luck here.
I am not looking for diopter-specific advice but trying to understand which would be a better route in my situation.
Here is my prescription history.
OD (Right eye) -0.75 CYL -0.50 Axis 130
OS (Left eye) -1.00
OD (Right eye) -0.50 CYL -0.50 Axis 105
OS (Left eye) -0.75 CYL -0.50 Axis 180
As you can see I was able to improve my vision by a quarter diopter in each eye. But my left eye now has astigmatism in it. Jake just released a video talking about Transient astigmatism with low diopter which I think I am probably going through at the moment.
For the last year, I have been in the process of equalizing my prescription and it has been a slow journey due to a lower diopter. I am currently wearing (OS/OD -0.50) without any cylinder value.
So I have two questions:
- Do you think I should keep trying to equalize both of my eyes? Or go back to reducing my diopter for an individual eye?
- Does it make sense to just stay at my current glasses till transient astigmatism clears up? Or make adjustments to the diopter/CYL?
Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
